Installation

To install via Composer, use the command below, it will automatically detect the latest version and bind it with ^.

composer require wyrihaximus/react-stream-json 

Usage

The JsonStream implements the ReadableStreamInterface from react/stream and behaves like the ThroughStream, the moment you write* to it, it will emit data.

The following example has a fixed number of items in the JSON and can be written to end with out needed a write* call.

$stream = new ThroughStream();
$anotherStream = new ThroughStream();

$jsonStream = new JsonStream();
$jsonStream->end([
    'key' => 'value',
    'promise' => resolve('value'),
    'stream' => $stream,
    'nested' => [
        'a' => 'b',
        'c' => 'd',
    ],
    'nested_promises' => [
        resolve('first'),
        resolve('second'),
    ],
    'nested_mixed' => [
        'first',
        resolve($anotherStream),
        resolve('third'),
    ],
]);

$stream->end('stream contents');
$anotherStream->end('second');

Stream contents will be: {"key":"value","promise":"value","stream":"stream contents","nested":{"a":"b","c":"d"},"nested_promises":["first","second"],"nested_mixed":["first","second","third"]}

Methods

All the following methods try to resolve $value, when it encounters a promise it will wait for the promise to resolve, and when it encounters a stream it will forward the stream's contents to it's own listeners. Promises can resolve to a stream but not vise versa. Any other parameters will be run though json_encode, except for arrays, those will be searched through for promises and streams.

write

write(string $key, $value) accepts a key and a value as argument. Writing a new key and value pair to the stream.

writeValue

write($value) accepts only a value as argument. Writing the value pair to the stream.

writeArray

writeArray(array $values) will iterate over the items in the array and call write or writeValue depending on the type of the key.

writeObservable

writeObservable(ObservableInterface $values) will subscribe to the observable and call writeValue on each item coming in.

end

end(array $values = []) will call writeArray when $values contains something and then or otherwise end the stream. At that point no new values are accepted and it continues to operate any outstanding promises or streams have been resolve/completed.

Caveats

The stream doesn't know if you want to write an object or an array so it assumes an object. It does try to detect when you haven't written anything yet and call writeArray or end with an array of items. You can force writing an array or object by calling JsonStream::createArray or JsonStream::createObject when creating an instance of JsonStream. Writing object items to a stream set up as array or vise versa will result in malformed JSON. In short you MUST know what kind of JSON you will be writing.

When using write the key parameter isn't checked duplicates resulting in writing it out again to the stream. Bear in mind that while PHP considers this perfectly valid JSON, the JSON spec doesn't specify a behavior for this. So your milage might vary, as described in section 4 of RFC7159, in PHP's case it will only use the value from the last occurrence.

Factories

This package ships with a factory containing factory methods for arrays JsonStreamFactory::createFromArray and observables JsonStreamFactory::createFromObservable. Both will create a few stream, pause it, write the array/observable to it, and end it.
